iPhone 6 leaked photos show Lightning port, microphone flex cable

A user of the MacX forum [via AppleInsider] is said to have come across a component of the next iPhone, namely the Lightning connector port, the microphone and the headphone jack.

The forum member claims his source is a former junior high school classmate currently working in Shenzhen, China.

The flex cable looks mostly similar to the latest generation iPhones, but with a few differences.

For example, the headphone jack appears to be larger than those found in the iPhone 5S.

In addition, the flex cable features some extra grounding plates, circuitry and an oval cut out above the Lightning connector, AppleInsider notes.

However, we cannot take for granted the component in question, because the source is not known.
